Hy Rothstein

Hy Rothstein is on the faculty at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. He has written and edited books and articles on special warfare and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He holds a Ph.D. in international relations from the Fletcher School at Tufts University and is a retired Army Special Forces colonel. The views here are his own.

Mark Moyar’s op-ed, “America’s Dangerous Love for Special Ops,” is at best, ill-informed and at worst, contemptuous of special operations forces.
